Because being forced to see past dreadful versions of the Jaguars wasn’t cruel enough to overseas fans, this week they get a Browns team that’s now micromanaging its rookie quarterback’s social life … and it’s DeShone Kizer this time, not Johnny Manziel. The Vikings were down one starting quarterback, their star rookie running back and two wide receivers last week against the Ravens, kicked six field goals and won. That would be good enough this week, as well.
Don’t be ashamed to root for the Chargers to keep … well, charging. Their 0-4 Kendall Wright Youth jersey start was too fluky, and their shutout of the Broncos to win their third straight was not. They’ve inserted themselves into the AFC West race. There’s no reason yet to believe the Patriots’ defense is back, even after swallowing up the Falcons last week.
Kenyan Drake, RB, Miami Dolphins (0.4 percent): While I think Williams should get first crack at the majority of touches following the Ajayi deal, Drake is still worthy of a pickup in leagues of 14 teams or more. He made the most of his 33 carries as a rookie last season, averaging 5.4 yards per carry and scoring twice. Drake was a factor in the passing game in his final season at Alabama in 2015, so it’s certainly possible he could be more involved. For now, I’m siding with Williams when forced to choose between the two.
But a good reminder: It’s always worth continuing to scour the waiver wire to plug the holes filled by players such as Hunt or Gurley. Last season, among the top 10 players most commonly rostered by ESPN Fantasy championship teams was Redskins running back Rob Kelley, who didn’t see regular work until Week 8. Keep an eye on the waiver wire this week and — candidly — every week going forward. You could find a league-winning player.
